. joining me now, national director of catholic democrats, steve kroouger, thank you for joining me tonight, steve. >> thank you. >> what does rick perry not understand about this little, little insignificant voting block in america called catholics? >> i'm not sure i could have said it any better than you did. one point of fact, catholics comprise about 25% of the population, and actually vote as a larger percentage than the overall population, so they comprise about 27% of the electorate and a small but important point, there's about 20 million so-called lapse catholics in the country that still have a catholic sensibility with a great appreciation for the catholic church. >> well, they definitely have a -- a catholic cultural tradition going. they have certainly a comprehension of what it means when some lunatic like hagee says what he says about catholicism. they know where that's coming from. >> that's right. and, you know, catholics have not forgotten the statement that he made, the statements that he made, and the affiliation that the mccain campaign had with him back in 2008. it too
me now, washington editor at large for the atlantic steve clemons, steve, thanks for joining me tonight. >> great to be with you, chris. >> so you look at where the u.s. has engaged and intervened and where they haven't, we are definitely not going to get into a shooting war with north korea no matter what kim jong-il does, he has a bomb. we did intervene in iraq and support nato intervention in libya. is the sort of perverse lesson not to give up your nuclear weapons? >> of course, it is. moammar gadhafi gave up his nuclear weapons as part of his own strategy to create a different kind of security for himself, which would embed himself and his family and his future with the west and try to behave a bit more, but now with the invasion, it sent a signal. in fact, on the day that president obama authorized intervention and we had our first nato strike there, north korea came out and basically told him he was a sucker, essentially, for having given up his nuclear weapons. and now the other problem, chris, is the bar for nations getting in the nuclear weapons track, technology has b
a sick one is capable of. so joining me now is steve kornacki, news editor for "salon." thank you for being here tonight. >> happy to be here. >> what do you think, i was in new jersey, living in new jersey, when chris christie challenged a sitting governor, challenged john korzine and won part of this straight talking, i can do something that no one else has done in a blue state like new jersey. what are we to make of chris christie as a potential candidate, is this real? >> i don't think it is. the reason it gets attention is because there really is a tremendous opening on the republican side right now, and there has been all year, and there's nobody to fill it. the hope of the republican establishment was rick perry's the guy. well, rick perry's the guy who's going to communicate with the republican base, but not in a way that scares off swing voters, obviously, what they've seen in the first four days 1 that may not be the case, i spent time in new jersey. there are a couple of factors really keeping him out, one is family. two is a simple reality that this guy spent ten years
, of course, they should not have, in fact, george had communicated to conde rice and steve hadley three times before a september speech in cincinnati telling them do not use this niger information, we don't believe it, and then articulated the reasons they don't believe it. indeed, a couple of days after the president's state of the union address, mike morel, the presumptive director of the cia now told a staffer we're not going to use that because we don't believe it, so they had lots of time, and it was never an apology, i don't think, anybody needed out of an administration that wasn't prone to apologize in the first place, it was just an admission they were wrong, which hopefully at that time would have encouraged the journalistic press to look into other things they might have misled the american public about. >> i want to read another is is cheney after korice's apology. >> she came in my office, sat down in the chair next to my desk and tearfullytted that i had been right. in an interview, cheney defended his use of the word "tearfully." listen to this. >> was she crying? >> she was te
